So if you are wandering what to buy to a seven year old boy for christmas, birthday or other special occasion, you are undoubtedly not alone. Boys at this age are particularly picky because they still love to play in classic, 'childish' way, yet don't want to admit it anymore. Their imagination is extremely strong, but on the other hand sense of reality is rising very fast. This means a toy for a 7 years old boy should be relatively realistic, yet open for hundreds of unexpected ways of usage.
In ideal world we are looking for a gift which is educational, fun, loaded with action and - obviously - cool.
